The display is also a capacitive touchscreen with 10-point touch support so you'll be able to utilize all the multi-touch gestures incorporated into Windows 8.

Windows 8.1 (64-bit) is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 (64-bit) improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click will simply take you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8 Start screen. Windows 8.1 (64-bit) provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

Windows 8.1

The Return of the Start Button
After many requests from Windows users, the Start button makes its triumphant return in Windows 8.1. While it may not be exactly the same as its predecessor in Windows 7, the Start button has two core functions. A left click on the Start button will take you to the Windows 8.1 Start screen featuring live tiles. A right click on the Start button brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control, Network options and more
Boot Directly to the Desktop
Windows 8.1 gives you the choice of booting to the Windows 8 Start screen with live tiles or booting to the familiar desktop screen of Windows 7. Users can also boot directly into an app or app view if they choose to
The Redesigned Start Screen
Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a tablet style design featuring tiles. Tiles are customizable as well as update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen
Seamless Integration of Multi-Touch Gestures
Windows 8 supports multi-touch gestures. Now, you can use your keyboard, mouse or the touchpad using simple gestures. Whether you're browsing apps, reading a book or typing on the go with touch, you'll be able to seamlessly switch between all three interactive components. With the touchpad, Windows 8 allows you to use multi-touch gestures, such as swipe, drag, tap, slide, pinch-to-zoom and more
To the Cloud
With Windows 8, when signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your personal Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more
Windows Store
In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is all about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it

      Comments about Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus NP940X3G-K04US 13.3" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer (Mineral Ash Black):

      let's get to the points.
      pros:
      +Fast computer
      +keyboard is just fine
      +high resolution
      +lightweight
      +Most beautiful laptop in the world. Looks very impressive.
      +Quality built in speakers.

      cons:
      -text is sometimes absurdly small due to high resolution. You'll need to lower the resolution unfortunately.
      -expensive
      -Trackpad doesn't compare to the downright comfortable "red" thinkpad pointing stick.

      I only used this product for 3 weeks. So I don't know how durable it is. I bet it's durable.

        I gave up a 15in. wide screen for 13.3 and yet I love the clarity an sharpness of text and great keyboard. The speed is equally impressive. I only took one day to get very comfortable with the book. I was looking for a very light notebook to carry around and I found it. I work with ms Excel a lot and was surprised how comfortable it is despite the small size. However windows software have yet to take advantage of the touchscreen

          If you are looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don't mind that it is a bit on the expensive side (and doesn't convert to a tablet), the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment. Boots fast, great color and detail in the screen, good feel keyboard and very lightweight. Definitely a plus for a photographer on the go.

          Very fast, very elegant, very slim..Great ultrabook with excellent multitasking capabilities, able to look at large RAW images and handle other programs like photoshop at the same time. Love the touch screen and resolution of the LCD!! Battery life is great although it did only last 5.5hrs once when i was on a flight, but it was very bright so i had the screen brightness maxxed out. Otherwise its excellent

            Comments about Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus NP940X3G-K04US 13.3" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer (Mineral Ash Black):

            Really Fast and thin, fantastic screen and very positive key strokes, the touch-screen feature is great for some applications.
            Its so light my coworker uses a Mac Air and was seriously impressed at the weight and performance. doesn't flex when you open it or when you type. some people are complaining about the use of aluminum which makes it feel cold when you first use it or heavier but although its true about the cold feel the rests just not true.
            It makes people look at the computer each time i take it out of the case so thin and sexy! Battery life is ok i thought it would be better but than it is if i compare it to my normal laptop!

            The fan is almost silent when running, downside is so far Windows 8.1 although i have not used windows 8 enough to moan about it too much or like other people have. fastest laptop i have ever used and my IT guy couldn't believe how fast this thing is faster than his desk top and the speaker system is fantastic

            Comments about Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus NP940X3G-K04US 13.3" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer (Mineral Ash Black):

            Great laptop, really thin, fast, beautiful screen and great trackpad, keyboard and touch-screen for interfaces.
            It is truly ultra portable without giving up performance. It is very sturdy and does not move/give in at all when you type, use the trackpad or even touch the screen.
            Downside of the material use (aluminum) is that it feels kind of cold when you boot up, and it is slightly heavier than alternative materials, but it looks amazing, and the build quality is much better this way (imagine it was plastic: the premium feel would totally be gone).
            Battery life is stellar, but I have not owned an ultrabook before, so I'm comparing to 'normal' laptops, and this one outlasts them all by a factor 2 easily!
            It is also extremely quiet, the heatsink must be amazing because the fan hardly works, and if it does you can still only barely hear it.
            The only downside is Windows 8.1, seriously Microsoft??? this new version is really a downer!
